A Child's Prayer for School

Download Video

'Go with God' is a common benediction. Isaiah 41:10 tells us to "Fear not, for I am with you.” Children facing first days from pre-school to college can take comfort in knowing that God is with us every moment. This United Methodist prayer reminds us that we can see God when we look for God's love in others.

A Child’s Prayer for School

by D.G. Hollums

God, Go with me to school,
I might need a friend.

God, Go with me to school,
sit with me at lunch and make me smile.

God, Go with me to school,
help me see you in each person around me.

God, Go with me to school,
help me to care for my teachers and the other students.

Go with me to school, God,
so I can learn how to love others.
